hey all

i know this has been covered before, but can't find exactly what i want! :P

i've found an EA 5-speed wreck w/ 180k on the odo - i realise i'll need to source an EF manual ECU, but what other issues will i run into fitting an EA T5 into an EF 4-speed?

cheers! :)

Yeh different ratios, and supposedly not as strong.
1st is very short if memory serves me right.
Similar first gear ratio to the Sprint T5.

Nothing wrong with an EA T5, Been using them in my ED for ages now, Yes different gear ratios, you won't need a maunal ECU if you use the resitor mod .

But it would be a good idea to put in a 6blot clutch, they can be tap & dyed into a 3 bolt flywheel .
